“Ring of Fire” is a song made popular by Johnny Cash when it appeared on his 1963 album Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash. Written by Cash’s eventual second wife, June Carter Cash, and Merle Kilgore, it was originally recorded as “(Love’s) Ring of Fire” by June’s sister, Anita Carter, on her 1963 album Folk Songs Old and New.
The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire went wild
I fell in to a burning ring of fire
Went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire
The ring of fire.
A couple days ago while moving from the garage to the house while setting up Halloween decorations husband announced
“Watch out see the small lizard?”
I looked down and saw a very small one with a very long tail. It had a reddish orange line on its back and knew I was seeing a salamander.
Symbolically bringing up the mythology of fire. Then I thought about the Annular Eclipse this October 14, 2023. Well, that is a nice synchronicity.
I don’t know about you reader, but yes, I have been very emotional fiery the last few weeks. Wars and politics on the world stage can fire us all up.
Ring of Fire
This song came up into my brain today that brings in an element we all need to focus on when we look at the Solar ring of fire annular eclipse, this electric element is the “world is love.”
Fire, love and electricity and the foresight and continuity of life can be a group focus. I will be watching this event this Saturday by way of the Weather Channel. Maybe have a beer or shot of Hudson Baby Bourbon Whiskey.
